Progress report

Since the preferred route announcement in 2018 we have been progressing our plans for the Binley junction (also known as the TGI Island), where current levels of congestion are having a serious effect on communities and businesses.

We have been undertaking further assessment and design work to ensure we are delivering a solution that supports economic growth in the area by improving traffic flow and safety, whilst providing value for money. We are also carefully considering feedback received from the public events held in 2018 and from our ongoing stakeholder engagement.

What's next?

We are continuing our ongoing design work for the Binley junction and plan to commence the statutory process in spring 2019. We remain on track to commence construction in 2020 and be completed in 2022.

We are developing options for the Walsgrave junction. Once viable options have been developed we will hold another public information event, where you will be able to share your views. We remain committed to working with the local community and stakeholders as we bring our plans forward.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:

  • improve safety
  • support the growing economy
  • support the smooth flow of traffic
  • increase capacity
  • relieve congestion
